Joji Locatelli – All I Want shawl in Waltham Aran released today!
NEW TODAY: Joji Locatelli has a gorgeous new Favourite Things collection of grey-knit goodness for all of us grey-o-holics out there and I am so honoured to say that the collection includes a cozy two colour Waltham Aran shawl called All I Want.
The shawl is a simple knit with easy lace patterns which grow organically without any complex stitches. True to its name this shawl is a squishy warm- hug of a wrap!
Incredibly quick to knit the sample shawl is knit in 3 skeins Waltham Aran.[content_band bg_color=”#eaecef” style=”padding-left:25px;padding-right:25px” border=”all”]
[blockquote type=”left”] To make it easy I’ve created a kit listing for you to buy the yarn on the shop. The kit has:

Waltham Aran is a gentle yarn soft enough for delicate skins. The mill spins this yarn using supersorted 100% British Bluefaced Leicester which means that the fibre is picked through at twice the rate that normal wools are handled, and then examined AGAIN before being combed and sent for processing at the spinning mill. This ensures that only the softest BFL is used for our blends, delicate enough for the most sensitive skins. With no pokey guard hairs it is perfect for those of use who crave the look and handle of honest, untreated yarn without the typically associated itch!
A spongy 3ply yarn with a bit of tooth, this yarn is ideal for cables and lace, like the soft lace in this shawl.
Bluefaced Leicester wool combines three highly prized qualities:
- a softness akin to Merino
- a long staple fibre which makes this yarn hard wearing and very low pilling
- a natural lustre which gives the yarn a gentle sheen, reflecting light to enhance stitchwork and colour without being too shiny
You can make this beauty monochromatic or play with color-blocking like the sample Joji knit in two greys.
